    I'm 2 months into year 12, and I freaking hate sixth-form. I am doing A Level Maths, Computer Science and Economics and I thought I had finally settled in a few weeks ago but they refused to let me change my Maths teacher, who I really do not get along with and cannot stay with for the next 2 years; that's obviously not the only reason I want to stop doing it but I just hate college.

    I don't have the discipline of a saint, but I guarantee I'd build it up and end up being a consistent A Level student... if anything I'd be learning more than I am at school. It sucks...

    Is there any way that I can teach myself at home and still do all of the exams and stuff? I might also opt to teach myself Statistics rather than Maths.

    You can register for your exams at a local examination centre. For Maths you can do the statistic modules. You would do C1-4 then S1-2.

    Learning at school is not for everyone, and as long as your parent or guardian agrees, you have a legal right to be homeschooled.

    This web page has some some good advice on homeschooling and university entrance:

    You may find it helpful to hire a private tutor, and this person may then be in a position to provide you with an academic reference. We have a large number of articles written by Maths and Economics tutors on our website that may be of interest:

    http://www.thetutorpages.com/a-level-economics-tutors

    A tutor may well also be able to advise on the best way to enter for the exams. If you're looking for a tutor in any of your subjects, you can search for one in your area (and read articles written by tutors) on our website:

    Good luck!
